Blurb:

I never set out to be famous. It sort of fell into my lap.
Just like Finn.

He was exactly what I needed in an assistant, and the exact opposite of everything I looked for in a guy, which made hiring him an easy decision.

It was perfect.
Then it wasn’t.

One by one, I started to fall for all of Finn’s imperfections, leaving me to question…

Was I simply looking for all the wrong things in a man? Or was Finn perfect because he was imperfect?

EXCERPT:

“So, you have a man working for you? A new assistant?”
My mother was never one to waste time getting to the point.
“Ma,” I sighed as I tossed my head back and stared at the ceiling. “Please don’t make a big deal out of this. My work has become too much for Gia. She can’t manage her full-time job and helping me, so I decided to hire someone.”
“I don’t like it.”
“You don’t like what, Ma?”
“He’s trying to take advantage of you. You are young and gorgeous. And single…right?”
This woman made me groan more than getting a bikini wax.
I rolled my eyes. “Yes, I’m single. Thanks for pointing that out.”
“Then that explains it.”
“Explains what?” This conversation would go ‘round and ‘round without getting anywhere.
“Why he’s interested in you. There aren’t male assistants, Mady.”
“Mama, he really is an assistant—and a good one at that. I had my doubts in the beginning, too. In fact, I almost didn’t hire him simply because he’s a guy.”
“What changed your mind?”
“He pleaded his case, and he had a very valid point, so I agreed to give him a try.”
She tsked and shook her head, disapproval wafting off her like fragrance from a perfume shop. “You think ‘because’ is a valid point. You’re too gullible most times.”

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Oh, how I adored these two! Together, Maddy and Finn are perfectly imperfect!

From the moment they meet — She mistakenly believed he’d be a she — to all of their quirks, insecurities and arguments, I was rooting hard for these two.

I liked that Finn is the assistant to Maddy, rather than the other way around. There’s a delicate balance between these two as he tries to help her build her brand, yet not overstep as her boyfriend or put her down as not being a strong enough businesswoman.

But eventually the lines between their personal and professional lives blur. Finn is a confident guy, but he ends up letting his insecurities get the best of him. Still kind of beaten down from his divorce, he sabotages things when the going gets rough and turns the blame onto Maddy. At least he is man enough to realize that he screwed up and their reunion is worth the wait!

While this is a standalone, it’s set in the same world and timeline as The UnEXpected Plan, as Maddy and Brooke are friends. While the girls all hang out and there are some scenes that also took place in Brooke’s book, there’s nothing that carries over that you would need to know about.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

About the Author:

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped. She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females. The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. And to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
